Gemma is famous as a glamour model with a bra size of 34E (due to a breast enlargement surgery in 2006). She told FHM, "Before I was a D-cup and I started boxing training and I lost loads of weight. With us girls your weight goes from your boobs and your bum first. I shrunk to a B-cup. It looks nice in a bra and I don't think any guy would have complained, but from a woman's point of view it wasn't very flattering for me, so I pumped them back up to their normal D-cup again."
Gemma Atkinson says her secret to being sexy is "having confidence.if you walk into a room and you're nervous or embarrassed, you draw the wrong kind of attention to yourself. Walk in thinking you look amazing and everyone'll think that too."
The one female celebrity body she's jealous of is Jessica Biel. "[She] has an amazing body. I'm quite good, I can tell if someone's slim through exercising or through not eating, and she seems to have a good balance" (skyliving.sky.com).
Gemma does have the occasional body hang-ups. "There's some cellulite I'd like to zap off, but it's nothing a bit of exercising can't fix. I went on holiday once and put on seven pounds, but then within a week of exercising it was gone again."
Her promotional work has included being the face of the 2007 British Grand Prix.
Gemma Atkinson supports a variety of charities, including breast cancer awareness and The Christie hospital.
About her fame, Gemma Atkinson said, "I've still got the same set of friends and try not to get caught up in the hype of things. I don't feel famous at all really. I was at my mum's last night wearing joggers and a T-shirt. My family would give me a good slap if I started acting famous."
